After triumphant guest performances worldwide, a new chapter of success now begins for "We Will Rock You", the smash hit by Queen and Ben Elton. From February 2022, the show around the 24 greatest Queen hits will tour Austria in the spectacular new staging of the original English production. Due to high demand, additional shows will take place in Salzburg and Linz in March 2022.
More than 15 million fans in 17 countries have been thrilled by "We Will Rock You" so far. The series of performances at London's Dominion Theatre alone lasted an astonishing twelve years with an almost incomprehensible 4,600 shows. The guest performance in the Cologne Musical Dome lasted four years. In total, around three million visitors saw "We Will Rock You" in Germany.
The futuristic musical comedy, which spans an arc in terms of content and visuals that is also reminiscent of Queen's legendary live performances, is considered a global phenomenon. Two dozen classics such as "We are the Champions", "Killerqueen" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" celebrate the career of one of the most brilliant rock bands of all time. The songs are sung in English, of course, while the dialogue is in German.
The blockbuster film "Bohemian Rhapsody" had recently demonstrated once again Queen's unique appeal. Their spectacular tours are still among the biggest attractions in rock music.
